thousands of login access - admin tools happily lets them do so...

i have hundreds of pages of login attempts which is a real pain to delete when I can only access 20 at a time.

This means an hour or so just to delete these logs.

why can't I see all the logs at one time and delete everything at once instaed of this waste of time?

Those login bots are persistent little devils, aren't they?

The bad news is that you can't mass delete the log entries from within Admin Tools.  You would get a PHP timeout error, the purge would crash, possibly damaging your database.  You can empty the entire table directly from the database through phpMyAdmin or a similar tool.  This is not the recommended solution.

The good news is that there's an easier way.  Go to Tools and Plugin Parameters.  In the first setting, "Maximum security exceptions log entries" set the number of entries you want to keep in your log.  Note that the log won't purge all at once, it will do it over time with each page load to avoid the PHP timeout.

Sorry another quick question.

I changed wp-login in Admin Tools but getting locked out when going to new login address.

"This has been disabled".

I'm looking for the table in database to find where i can check / change login url.


Cheers for your help.

This change is not applied permanently in the database. It's applied using WordPress filters when the plugin loads – that's the only way WordPress can do that.

You can rename the file wp-content/plugins/admintoolswp/app/plugins/waf/feature/customadminfolder.php to customadminfolder.php.bak to temporarily disable this feature. You can log into your site, reset the  Change admin URL setting and finally rename that file back to customadminfolder.php.
